Science in Singapore, 1999-2003

Category : NUS

Science in Singapore, 1999-2003. Science Bytes, 7th March 2005. See also ">10-year Country Rankings for Singapore. !QuickScience!, 7th March 2005. (Science Bytes and !QuickScience! are part of in-cites - an editorial component of ISI Essential Science Indicators from ISI). From Resource Shelf.

"Between 1999 and 2003, Thomson Scientific indexed 19,661 papers that listed at least one author address in Singapore. Of those papers, the highest percentage appeared in journals categorized under the heading of computer science, followed closely by engineering.

The impact (or average citations per paper) of computer-science papers from Singapore was 18% below the average in the field during the five-year period (1.03 cites per paper for Singapore versus the world average of 1.26 citations), with an identical score recorded in engineering.

On the other hand, the impact of mathematics research in Singapore surpassed the world mark by 10%. Other areas of comparatively strong performance were materials science and microbiology (both at 95% of the world average) and plant & animal sciences (just 2% below).

In agricultural sciences, Singapore-based authors contributed to only 104 Thomson-indexed papers, but at least a few of these reports, evidently, were very highly cited, giving the nation a score 48% above the world average.

We're 48% above the world citation average for agricultural research? Have to examine this later.
